THE LEAGUE OF IMAGINARY SCIENTISTS (LUCY HG & PARTNERS)
The Irish Rover: Looking for Mars Off the Northern Coast of Ireland

Projet: The Irish Rover: Looking for Mars Off the Northern Coast of Ireland
Résumé, version intégrale du texte en anglais uniquement
http://www.imaginaryscience.org/lovelyweather/index.html

Le projet s'inspire de la recherche conduite actuellement sur la planète Mars par la NASA. L'idée est de mener une expédition scientifique le long de la péninsule de Fanad/Swilly sur le modèle de celle actuellement en cours sur Mars. En croisant les histoires planétaires et les deux climats totalement opposés, la League posera la question d'une évolution climatique qui pourrait conduire la Terre à avoir un climat martien.

THE LEAGUE OF IMAGINARY SCIENTISTS (LUCY HG & PARTNERS)
The Irish Rover: Looking for Mars Off the Northern Coast of Ireland
Letterkenny / Milford Electoral Area

Project: The Irish Rover: Looking for Mars Off the Northern Coast of Ireland
http://www.imaginaryscience.org/lovelyweather/index.html

The project focuses on and takes its inspiration from the legendary voyage of 'The Irish Rover' and the current work being carried out by NASA on Mars. The idea is to develop a scientific expedition along the Fanad / Swilly peninsula's that will mirror the work currently being undertaken on Mars. In combining planetary storylines, the League hopes to draw a reverse timeline from Earth to Mars and question whether the Earth could end up with a Martian like climate in the future. In examining these seemingly opposite planetary climates, we hope to understand the effects of climate change on Donegal.


Biography: The US based League of Imaginary Scientists is a group of artists and scientists who engineer hybrid art works in the cross-section of their worlds, in collaboration with local communities. The League's previous history aboard boats, barges and ferries prepares them of their Irish expedition. This includes works with the NY Water Taxi, a League residency on the Waterpod (a floating sustainable habitat).
